Coming off a a very strong Money Night performance last week, this was supposed to be the beginning of LaGarrette Blount's National coming out party. But instead Blount suffered an undisclosed leg injury that forced him to the sideline for much of the second half. The Bucs are still being tightlipped about the nature of the injury, according to Stephen Holder of TampaBay.com.
Asked whether Blount could have returned to the game, coach Raheem Morris said, “I just listen to what my doctors tell me. I know he didn’t come back. He was icing down. Healthy men have to play. That was Kregg Lumpkin and Allen Bradford when we pulled (Earnest Graham) out of there.”
This was a bad week for the Bucs injury-wise because they also lost Gerald McCoy in this one with a leg injury that looked a little bit more serious than Blount's. We'll have more on the injury as soon as we find out more information.
